Share it:


The GE Vivid iq is a new and upgraded GE’s Vivid line cardiovascular portable ultrasound system from the base of Vivid q and Vivid i. The Vivid iq has integrated the full touch screen control 15.6″ monitor on conventional user control panel upgrading the user’s intuitive control and operation quality. The Vivid iq applies the trackpad design instead of the trackball interface. The GE Vivid iq is light weight, and with the dedicated cart, three RS and one DLP to support 6VT-D ports are available. Optional three batteries enable to scan more than 180 min with the system battery. The GE Vivid iq enables to support cardiac, transesophageal, peripheral vascular, fetal/OB, abdominal adults, pediatric, small organ, neonatal cephalic, adult cephalic, musculoskeletal.

Review

GE Vivid iq Review:

The GE Vivid iq is an all new system, but developed based on Vivid I and Q. It is the 2nd generation of GE’s dedicated cardiovascular portable system, so GE integrated many experimental hardware features and interface. Especially its console design, which has been totally changed from the former system, Vivid q and i, and integrated 15.6″ multi touch screen enables an user to experience more intuitive workflow. One of the most experimental function is using a track pad instead of a track ball that most systems currently use. With newly the designed cart, the Vivid iq supports many peripheral devices and four transducers including one DLP to support 6VT-D. Apparently, the GE Vivid iq does not support 4D TEE and ICE(Intra Cardiac Echocardiography), but those two features are expected to be integrated soon. Due to the estimated price point over $50,000 equal to Philips CX50, 4D TEE and ICE would be key options for the GE Vivid iq to successfully settle down its position at target market. The clinical options and features of the GE Vivid iq are almost similar to those of Vivid iq. Right now, due to the early version preexisted options and features are only applied. The advanced features expect to be loaded in the next version.

FAQs

GE Vivid iq FAQs:

§ Auto Optimization is a one-touch image optimization function that a user to optimize the image based on the actual B-mode image or Pulse wave Doppler data. The function works based on preset levels (Low, Medium, and High) and allows user to pick a preference for the contrast enhancement in the resulting image. Low does the least amount of contrast enhancement, high does the most. Auto Optimization is available in single or multi image, on live, frozen or CINE images (in B-Mode only), while in zoom, and in Spectral Doppler. Auto Optimization in PW Doppler Mode optimizes the spectral data. Auto adjusts the Velocity Scale (live imaging only), baseline shift, dynamic range, and invert (if preset). Upon deactivation, the spectrum is still optimized.

§ B-Flow utilizes gray scale imaging to visualize a blood flow with different gray intensities according to the reflectors speed and hemodynamics. B-Flow is less dependency on the user or scanning angle, but Color Doppler heavily dependent on scanning angle, and also provides higher frame rate and spatial resolution than Color Flow. B-Flow may help visualize vessel-wall irregularities, kidney perfusion, liver and spleen vasculature, and bladder reflux or jets.

§ Anatomical M-Mode helps improve accuracy of arrhythmia assessments and cardiac measurements. It enables to provide M Mode images truly perpendicular to ventricular septum.

§ Virtual Apex provides wider FOV in the nearfield. Available on sector probes

§ Raw Data is a software tool that enables image processing, quick data re-acquisition, and image analysis with same resolution and same frame rates of original images. Raw Data helps shorten exam duration, improves clinical work flow by post-processing, and reduces a time to put probe on a patient.

§ Auto IMT automates measurement of intima-media thickness of vessel. Auto IMT helps keep tracking atherosclerosis diseases from the early stage as it is developed.

§ Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is myocardial Doppler Imaging with color overlay on tissue image available on the sector probes. Tissue color overlay can be removed to show just the 2D image, still retaining the tissue velocity information. Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is an ultrasound based technique used for quantitative analysis of the cardiac function and has earlier been evaluated according to myocardial velocities. The technique is the same as for Doppler echocardiography, measuring flow velocities. Tissue signals however, have higher amplitude and lower velocities, and the signals are extracted by using different filter and gain settings.

§ Auto EF is the function that automatically measure LV ejection fraction. Along with the Automated Function Imaging (AFI) feature, Auto EF maximizes time efficiency by the reproducible quantitative output that increases physician’s diagnostic confidence.

§ Quantitative analysis (Q Analysis) software package is designed for analysis of TVI related (Tissue Tracking, Strain, Strain rate, TSI) and Contrast related raw data. Q Analysis traces for velocity or derived Parameters inside defined regions of interest as function of time
